Harry Kane: The big difference I’ve noticed with Tottenham this season

Harry Kane discusses the changes he has had to cope with playing for Tottenham this season

Harry Kane has revealed that he has been getting much more attention from defenders this season after his sparkling campaign for Tottenham last term.

The England international enjoyed a breakthrough season under Mauricio Pochettino at White Hart Lane last term and was voted the PFA young player of the year.

Kane has developed into one of the top strikers in the Premier League and his two goals helped Spurs beat Aston Villa 2-0 on Sunday to keep their title bid on track.

The 22-year-old has scored 19 goals in the top flight for the north London side so far this season to help Tottenham up to second place in the Premier League table.

However, the striker accepts that he must be willing to adapt his game if he wants to continue improving.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday’s win at Villa, Kane said: “There was a lot of talk at the start of the season but the top players in the world find a way to get around and score 20 or 30 goals, season after season.

“I want to be one of the top strikers and I know I have to find ways to score goals that are different from last season because there is probably more attention than there was last year.

“Defenders get tighter this year. Whenever I get in a position to shoot, there are two or three people trying to block the shot.

“That’s one of the little things I’ve noticed and I definitely see little differences from last season. If you want to be a player scoring goals every year in the Premier League, you have to be able to cope with that.”
